We’ve got some new content including some video inside running you through the details on the new Nukeproof Mega 27.5 bikes, SRAM X01, new Park Tools, and Lezyne’s new digital floor pump.
The Nukeproof Mega has been received well and they’ve added a 27.5″ wheel option for 2014. If you’re still after a 26″ verison, you can still purchase a frameset. A few build options will be available in the Mega range to suit the various price points. The frames feature a lot of decent components from SRAM / RockShox.
More details can be seen here on the new lineup including internal routing for dropper posts.

In addition to the new parts on display, Nukeproof also had Matt Simmonds World Championship bike on display. This is as he rode it for the most part (save for things like the shock that he took to run at Leogang). You can see more shots of his bike in the gallery.

Duncan Rifle expands on the X01 clientelle below but the basic idea is XX1 trickled down for everyone. If you haven’t tried X01 yet, you need to.
It’s a capable gruppo that we think will continue to change the industry in a positive way as suspension kinematics, frame design, and other areas also benefit in addition to you the consumer. You can learn more about X01 in the details we’ve posted before on it. It offers wide range of gearing with the big 10-42t cassette gives you a wide range of gearing with more clearance and chain retention without the need for a chainguide. If you don’t think you can pedal this system then you probably haven’t tried it.
